As you can see above, it’s really a close call, so picking between the two would be a matter of priorities.

Samsung Galaxy S6 advantages:


  • Slightly larger display
  • Higher screen resolution
  • Super AMOLED technology
  • 64GB & 128GB internal memory options
  • Optical Image Stabilization
  • Higher resolution selfie camera
  • Wireless Charging
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Heart-rate monitor
  • Thinner

HTC One M9 advantages:

  • Super LCD 3 display
  • 1080p resolution (for those who argue we don’t need anything higher)
  • Expandable memory
  • Higher resolution rear camera
  • Larger battery
  • BoomSound speakers

Right now, we really can’t decide which is better at performance, which has a better camera or even which wins at price, so we’ll have to wait and see until we get our hands on these two devices.

Until then, we’ll leave it to you to decide! Stay tuned for more coverage.

    No micro sd slot = no buy

    kung pareho ang price, HTC. I will buy Sammy if nasa P20k ang s6 (syempre mahal yan).

    Talo sa out of the box internal storage ang One M9. Sa 32gb, 21gb lang ang usable. Masyadong malaki ang kinain ng Sense 7 kaya mapipilitan din na bumili ng sd card kung madalas magrecord at kumuha ng picture ang gagamit.

    Very disappointing ang S6. I thought since flagship sya at least 4GB ang RAM pero NO!!! Hanggang 3GB lang talaga kaya ni Sammy. OK din si M9 kaso sayang yung storage na kinonsume ng Sense 7. tsk tak tsk… Now I know I’d buy a Zenfone 2

  5. NightSurfer says:

    To add, Samsung s6 has wireless charging and fast charging, has 32/64/128 GB next-gen NAND UFS storage options(no micro SD is justifiable since its faster to access data directly into flash storage), DUAL SIM(at least for Philippines version), has optical image stabilization and 5mp front shooter.
